Apart from online, I actually talk with RO on the phone pretty often and can assure you that RO has NOT gone crazy.
Have you ever gotten really drunk and euphoric at a party and wandered around telling people “I Love you Man” and “Its all Good”. and maybe “Dude, EVERYTHING is like SO BEAUTIFUL!”
RO has been kind of drunk on life like that… since September.
He will never be the same again, but nor should he be. He will however settle down a bit on the euphoria.
I never leave a candle burning anywhere ever. People will tell you that it is safe. Others will tell you that the glass encased candles are safe. I have even met some people who simply insist that the gods will protect them and that if they house burns down it is the gods will.
SCREW ALL THAT
Talk to a firefighter from any community with a high ATR population and they all have stories about glass candles that exploded and houses that burned down, and Florida water catching fire.
I dispose of them respectfully. I leave them where animals can eat them. If they are non-edible like money or jewels they get left with the icons of that spirit forever. Even if the icon or fetish gets packed away, the offering gets packed with it. I only give such things on RARE occasions specifically for that reason.
I haven’t decided yet. All the basics that she gave me are there, but there is just something that I am missing. Or perhaps something that I have added which is not right. Not sure.
I have written about my relationship with her elsewhere. Basically she contacted me while I was meditating at the charnel grounds. I explained that I would not worship her, but am happy to work with her. She told me that she doesnt seek worship and that the only worship fitting to her is to become as she is. I offered a supper to her when I got back to the states and began to channel a series of spirits, rituals, and such. It became apparent that it was precisely my training in Tibetan ritual that made me desirable to bring through what she wanted brought through.
The rite can be used with other entities from the Goetia but you have to change the Greek and Egyptian Names of the Decons to match the spirit as well as the Psalm quote at the beginning.
I have worked with only about half of them. Like a lot of people Vassago was my first and remains a solid informant. Samignina was great for summoning a shade that I had no physical link with. Dantalion was great for finding love for a client once. Bune is great, but is getting to be a little bit of a Deva from all the attention he is getting. Orobas is hungry for attention. Andromalius once performed a dirty deed done dirt cheap. Astaroth has a FAST turn around for me.
Honestly, the only one that I ever had a difficulty with was Asmoday. It was as traditional an evocation as most anyone does, but I shut it down almost as soon as I got a manifestation. It felt like PURE fucking evil.
